The last time the Astros got this far, it was 2005 - and they were in the National League.

"I've been asked that question like 10 times already", a slightly exasperated Keuchel said.

This is somewhat surprising as McHugh was left off the team's ALDS roster.

Unlike the pitcher, manager A.J. Hinch didn't shy away from singing Keuchel's praises for his work against the Yankees.

Astros infielder Alex Bregman belted a game-tying home run off Red Sox ace hurler Chris Sale - pitching in relief - to lead off the eighth inning and Josh Reddick delivered a two-out run-batted-in single later in the inning off of Red Sox closing pitcher Craig Kimbrel that put the Astros up 4-3. But he was quick to point out that Keuchel's success certainly hasn't been limited to games against NY.

"I have been trying to hit it the other way so it felt good", said Bellinger. So if I wait until game three, you don't know if you're going to get there.

Astros manager A.J. Hinch sent Justin Verlander to the mound for Game 1 of an ALDS win over the Red Sox, but southpaw Dallas Keuchel will get the first crack against NY.

The Yankees will look to rally from a 2-0 deficit to win an ALDS for the second time.

The New York Yankees completed their comeback Wednesday night, defeating the AL regular season leaders Cleveland Indians in Game 5. If more than one of their starters gets knocked out of the box early, the Yankees biggest strength - its bullpen - could suffer from fatigue as the series wears on. Verlander, who was acquired on August 31, made his first career relief appearance to help eliminate the Red Sox in Game 4 on Monday. "So I have all the confidence in the world". He bounced back this year despite neck issues, posting a 14-5 record with a 2.90 ERA to help the Astros run away with the AL West title.

The Red Sox will counter with Drew Pomeranz, who won a career-high 17 games and posted a 3.32 ERA during the regular season. "We felt like that we could win this series, but we knew it was going to be tough", said Astros manager AJ Hinch. He allowed three hits and struck out seven in seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory.

"He's had some really big starts, his last two starts have been outstanding", Joe Girardi said of Tanaka.

These pitchers will face two of the best hitters in the majors in Houston's Jose Altuve and NY rookie Aaron Judge. Judge, the top rookie and MVP candidate, had one hit in 20 at-bats with two walks and 16 strikeouts.

Altuve has kept up his blistering pace in the postseason, where he's hitting.533 with three homers and four RBIs. The Yankees are hardly a one-man band, but they will have a hard time advancing if Houston is able to keep Judge from leaving the yard. "So just keep playing my game, keep having fun. just contribute any way I can". "When we made the move to pitch Verlander in Game 4 out of relief we had the backdrop that Dallas was going to start Game 5".

Girardi, whose contract expires after this season, was booed at home during introductions before ALDS Game 3 on Sunday night at Yankee Stadium, two days after starter CC Sabathia was pulled after only 77 pitches and the bullpen then squandered a five-run lead.

Game 7 @ Houston, Saturday, Oct. 21, Time TBD.
